Unidimensional Inhomogeneous Isotropic Elastic Half-Space


The homogeneous system of the equations of the linear theory of elasticity for the isotropic environment with one-dimensional continuous heterogeneity is considered. Bidimensional transformation Fourier is applied and the problem for images is led to the ordinary differential equations. Generally, the differential equations are transformed in integro-differential and the algorithm of such transformation is resulted. Solutions of specific problems are resulted.
